How to Grow
Pot up Fuchsia arborescens using well drained compost such as John Innes No.3, and grow on in warm, frost-free conditions. Pinch out the growing tips while fuchsia plants are still small to promote bushier growth and more flowers. Tender fuchsias make ideal specimens for a warm conservatory or can be stood out on a sheltered patio between May and October. When plants are well grown and all risk of frost has passed, gradually acclimatise them to outdoor conditions over a 7 to 10 day period, before placing them in their final positions in sun or semi shade.
More Info
Feed and water regularly throughout the growing season. Deadhead faded fuchsia flowers to encourage more blooms to be produced. In autumn, before the first frosts, move containers of Fuchsia arborescens to a frost free position for the winter and reduce watering. Prune stems back to a low permanent framework in spring.
